Customer Question

I have a Nepalese prayer on Vellum-It's about the size of a business envelope then sort of accordion it's opens over 5 ft. long. It's 17th century. Is it worth it to try and sell it. I e mailed a pic to a new york dealer who was interested- agreed, then cancelled his check. I had not yet shipped. I thought it Hindi and written in sanskrit-I later learned it is in Pali. the front side has alternating panels of pictures and prayer in Pali. the entire back is prayer.It'a in very good conditions and the gods are beautifully executed. Any idea how much, maybe a ball park. It would be hard to display and I've thought of a long upright plexi box but it was way too expensive to consider.
